Blue Monkey Wavespell of Playing

by Mariela Maya



Remember the magical experience I had last year after the Winter Solstice Despacho ceremony in December when the bay leaves fell in the shape of a heart? (It’s here if you haven’t seen it). Well, I’ve been seeing hearts everywhere since!!! I used to see them in stones, leaves and clouds, and now they are in practically everything. The collage above has some of the photos I took with my phone showing hearts in a broken corn cracker, ice cream spoon, sushi roll, wet food after my cat finished eating, and even an old chewing gum glued on the sidewalk in Delft during our recent trip to Holland. Lots of heart-opening, magical and fun experiences!


The Tzolkin, Sacred Mayan Calendar, is a cycle of 260 days composed of 20 glyphs by 13 numbers. Each day combines a glyph and a number giving to it a specific meaning as an invitation to connect with certain aspects of our being. Every 13 days, there is a shift of energy and the glyph that falls on the first day sets the purpose for the following almost two weeks. In the modern application of the Tzolkin, the 13-day period is called a Wavespell, and there are 20 Wavespells in a cycle. If all this is new to you, the best approach is by playing with it instead of trying to understand technical concepts. You will see how magically and synchronically everything unfolds!

The Blue Monkey Wavespell is the 11th Wavespell out of twenty in the current cycle based on the modern count. From April 29 to May 11, 2016, we are invited to awaken our inner child and play! Let’s see what each of the Wavespell’s day represents in this current cycle by combining the Tzolkin’s 20 glyphs with one of the 13 numbers.

Friday, April 29, Blue Magnetic Monkey Core Day
Purpose: the first day of any Wavespell sets the purpose for the specific period of 13 days. During the Wavespell of the Blue Monkey, the purpose is to have fun and do things we enjoy while we enjoy the things we are doing. What do you love to do?

The heart of the Tzolkin falls this time on April 28-29, when we are in the center of the center and closer to the pulse of life and our own rhythms. See at the end of this message for additional information.

Also, Mercury goes retrograde today until May 22, 2016. More than starting new projects and trying to stay super productive, this is a good time to slow down and take care of things we have pending. The 5 planets: Mercury (communication), Mars (action), Jupiter (material), Saturn (structure) and Pluto (transformation) are retrograde simultaneously inviting us to review where we are and where we want to be as we give completion to what we already started. What a great window is opening up for us to play!

Saturday, April 30, Yellow Lunar Human Core Day
Challenge: the second day of any Wavespell is the one that shows us the extremes. Sometimes, we may feel guilty if we are having fun instead of doing something ”more important” or knowing that others are suffering. Do you allow yourself to enjoy?

Sunday, May 1, Red Electric Skywalker Core Day
Bonding: the third day of any Wavespell is the one that “connects the dots”. Life becomes a great Adventure when we discover joyful ways of being and explore the world with excitement. How can you bring Heaven on Earth daily?

Monday, May 2, White Self-Exiting Wizard Core Day
Shaping: the fourth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives shape and form. Blue Monkey plays with magic! Children are constantly living in their magical world where castles are formed out of sand. How can you bring more magic into your life?

Tuesday, May 3, Blue Overtone Eagle Core Day
Empowering: the fifth day of any Wavespell is the one that empowers. When we play, it is easier to unhook from the drama and see the big picture. Are you ready to spread your wings and expand your vision to feel empowered?

Wednesday, May 4, Yellow Rhythmic Warrior Core Day
Balancing: the sixth day of any Wavespell is the one that brings balance. Setting new goals and planning the steps to achieve them can be something fun while we focus on what we want instead of “jumping from branch to branch”. Can you organize yourself without getting distracted?

Thursday, May 5, Red Resonant Earth Core Day
Aligning: the seventh day of any Wavespell is the one that helps us to become centered. How fun it is to be outdoors, enjoy Nature and play with children and pets! As we do that, we automatically enter in resonance with Life. Do you experience it?

Friday, May 6, White Galactic Mirror Core Day
Integrating: the eighth day of any Wavespell is the one for integration. As we act with integrity and authenticity, the mirror reflects back to us happy experiences. Are your inner and outer worlds reflecting in harmony?

Saturday, May 7, Blue Solar Storm Core Day
Pulsing: the ninth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives the last push prior to manifestation. When we choose with simplicity to enjoy life amidst all this intensity and chaos, it’s easier to transform what no longer serves us. Can you try it?

Sunday, May 8, Yellow Planetary Sun Core Day
Manifesting: the tenth day of any Wavespell is the one that manifests. When we shine in our own light, it’s easier for us to manifest whatever we want. Do you enjoy your personal time doing what you love or do things by commitment to others?

May 8 is the last day of the Mystic Column and its 20 Core Days, which started on April 19, 2016. You will find information about this period at the end of this message.

Monday, May 9, Red Spectral Dragon
Releasing: the eleventh day of any Wavespell is the one that liberates. When we worry about everything and everybody, it’s difficult for us to relax and we don’t have time to take care of ourselves and feel nurtured. What are you worried about?

Tuesday, May 10, White Crystal Wind
Sharing: the twelfth day of any Wavespell is the one for cooperation. How wonderful it would be if we could all feel free to speak our truth and share with others what we truly need and want. Do you express yourself with honesty, as a child would?

Wednesday, May 11, Blue Cosmic Night
Transcending: the thirteenth day of any Wavespell is the one that gives closure. And finally, as we play with our imagination, humor and spontaneity, we take it easy and open up to new possibilities where our experiences become abundant on all levels!


The Blue Monkey Wavespell is the third Wavespell of the Blue Castle of Transformation. The following matrix, called Harmonic Module, shows a little heart in the middle and this is when we are in the “center of the center”. It always happens on the last day of the previous Wavespell of the White Mirror and the beginning of the Blue Monkey Wavespell. In this cycle, it falls on April 28-29, 2016. What a great invitation in these so turbulent times to stop for a moment, breathe consciously, listen to our hearts and feel one with the web of life as we experience oneness in its highest vibration!

*** HOUSTON NEWS – Green Planet Sanctuary ***

After many years of hosting events and ceremonies at Green Planet Sanctuary, it is time to say goodbye as GPS is being sold this month. It has been such a bliss and joy to share this sacred and beautiful place with the ones of you that are in Houston. I will let you know soon where our future gatherings will be until Cathy’s Dream Glamping Retreat is ready for us to enjoy in Round Top, Texas.

GPS is having a “Good Buy Sale” this Saturday from 8am-5pm and Sunday from 10am-5pm, in Cathy’s words: “for last chance to explore our peaceful grounds and take home some art, furniture or other stuff we are clearing out!”. For any question, you can contact her by email: cathy [at] greenplanetsanctuary [dot] com.

Have fun!

In Lak’esh means “I am another yourself!”, a Mayan greeting that recognizes the Divine in each living Being. It’s a message of Unity that reminds us that, when we give, we are also receiving. In this way, the Mayan honored and respected each other, reinforcing the belief that we are all interconnected: what we do to others and to our environment will also affect ourselves in the end…

Munay means both ‘Love’ and ‘Beauty’ in Quechua, the language of the Incas. Munay, translated as ‘To love’, is one of the three principles of the Andean way.
